All this goat talk... do not think i am neglecting the ponies, lol! The weather has just been yucky so I have been feeding them, going over them all with a shedding blade, then letting them chill out and stuff their faces. I am REALLY impatient to get back to working Brego so I can get him under saddle again now that I have a saddle that will fit.
I've also been busy clearing out the brush along the ditch at the end of the road since instead of fixing the hole at the end of the driveway the road commission ignored that issue and decided to focus on the brush blocking clear line of sight on the road. I am sure that is going to delight the neighbor and probably make her mad at us. And we still have a huge mud pit that forms at the end of the drive. Same story, different decade. Only now my neighbor is going to be TICKED. yay.
I decided what kind of shelter I am going to make for my goats. I'm going to make one of these:
Goat shelter made with cattle panels and tarps.
It will be fairly easy to move around if I want to, and if weather gets really REALLY bad I can lock them into the stud stall in the barn. Eventually I'll have a few sheds out there but for now this will get me started and by next year when I have kids hitting the ground I will have individual pens/shelters for each mom to kid in.
Now i just have to figure how to get all the cattle panels I will need for shelters and fences home, lol.
